Simon Aspinall, Marketing Manager, Verder Liquids

“The BFBI is a credit to the industries it serves. We as a company are a member of several industry associations, but few have the commitment and initiative of the BFBI led by Ruth. What has stood out to us as a manufacturer is the level of frequent communication about the industry to assist our products and the sense of urgency to connect members. We would heartily recommend that any service provider, manufacturer or stakeholder in the hygienic industries should join the BFBI; you’re in safe hands with Ruth.”

Andy Lawrence, Business Development Manager, TVS Supply Chain Solutions

“We at TVS Supply Chain Solutions would like to say a huge thank you to Ruth and the BfBi for the sheer amount of information that has been provided to us during the Covid-19 pandemic. Checking back, the very first mention of this was in an email on 9th March, and then from the 15th March when the lockdown was effectively introduced there has been an almost daily update. The amount of work that has gone on behind the scenes while in lockdown has been astounding, from information gathering and sharing to direct lobbying of government, all while the rest of the team have been furloughed! The insights that we have gathered during this time has enabled us to make sound business decisions around the messages that we send out to our customers and the timings of these messages. Thank you for your absolute dedication to the membership as always Ruth.”  

Matthew Hidderley, Head of Sales & Marketing at Lorien Engineering Solutions

“As a Member of BFBi, we find many of their services invaluable. Their global News service keeps me up to date with all that is happening in our sector as well as providing articles and information.   Other services we have used include; export sales & marketing workshop, grants for overseas exhibitions, inclusion in the BFBi Directory and, of course, both national and section networking events. In addition we have used the helpline to clarify various issues and found the advice to be exemplary.” Jon McClean, MD, Hanovia
